POWR Baltic Stories Exchange

POWR Baltic Stories Exchange is looking to select 6 feature film projects in the early stages of development and which are actively seeking producers. The workshop is aimed to give mainly Nordic and Baltic scriptwriters access to an informal and international forum where they can present their projects and writing talent during the largest regional film market in North-Eastern Europe. We also invite talents from Baltic Event’s focus region of 2019 – Ireland to apply to POWR!

During our 4-day workshop from the 25th of November till the 28th of November, 6 screenwriters will practice skills to pitch their projects through group sessions, talks and rehearsals. It is an open, generous, and sharing atmosphere, headed by our main tutor, Valeria Richter (Denmark), pitch coach Helene Granqvist (Sweden/Nordic Factory) and selected industry guests. The final pitch will be approx. 5 minutes per project, followed by individual feedback and advice shared by selected producers and other film industry representative. POWR is an intensive and fun experience, mixing project work with networking events.

POWR workshop is organized by Baltic Event in collaboration with the region’s Creative Europe MEDIA Desks.

The Call for Projects is now open and closing on September 2. Submissions are handled by Baltic and Nordic Media Desks. Please find detailed information regarding the eligibility criteria, required documentation, special conditions and Rules & Regulations under Submissions.
